So when I start my first year I'll be 20 so my grants etc will be based on my parents income. When I start my second year I will be 21. Will my second year finace be based on my own income because I'd be classed as independant?

No. My sister was 21 when she started uni in September was still classed as a dependant. I think you have to have been living independently from your parents for 3 years to be classed as independent.
I'm not sure but you might be classed as a mature student in your second year?
