What input do subject teachers and HoY have into the UCAS applications process?
I think it depends on the school, but usually little more than checking personal statements and perhaps a reference (though I think usually their most recent written report is submitted)
Its been a few years since I was a y12 tutor so not completely sure.
Perhaps it'd be better posting this in the FE forums.
In my current and past places of work, subject teachers provide "report style" comments about the student's activities and strengths in subject areas, and then someone else who knows the student (tutor in large college, HoY in small one) edits them into a coherent school/college reference. In the large college, since the tutor may not be very experienced in this, further checking editing is done by more senior staff.
Obviously, different places will have different arrangements.......
