so like every other sixth form u can't get ur results if u havent returned books.

i have lost some in the school, and quite a few are damaged. (i know i have little siblings who damaged it...plus i chose the oldest books because i like older looking things over new ones....the covers were almost ripping)

altogether i have to pay the school back around £200

i'm starting my job in september so i won't get a paycheck until then, and i can't ask my parents because it's unfair.

what do i tell the teachers without sounding broke af?? T_T i'm literally too embarrassed about this sitch.

How badly damaged are the books? are they something you can mend? If you've lost some in school then maybe you need to ring nearer the time and talk to them.
If you can repair enough of them or make them look slightly more presentable, that'll save you some money. If not, can you buy cheaper replacements? Sell some old stuff you don't need anymore maybe to raise the money? like on depop or something.

maybe if you can reattach the cover? if not i agree with the other user, definitely by second hand and replace them, at the end of the day, the school just needs books to lend to students and if you pay you're paying for replacements. You can check with them though to be safe although i'm sure it'll be fine

Schools and colleges are specifically banned from withholding results from candidates. The regulations https://www.jcq.org.uk/exams-office/general-regulations say

5.12 The centre will:
b) distribute provisional statements of results to all candidates without delay and regardless of any disputes (such as non-payment of fees).
(Centres are not permitted to withhold provisional results from candidates under any circumstances. Under the terms of the General Data Protection
Regulation centres that receive a Subject Access Request are compelled to release results to candidates within timescales prescribed by the General Data Protection Regulation

So turn up, quote the regulations and collect your results.
