Right, I'm 99% there... students have access to their folders and all the right permissions are in place, apart from their subfolders and files. I've tried NTFSFix, but that isn't fixing the subfolders/files either.
Is there a batch I can run to literally tick this button for each folder?
(I've already done it on this folder, hence the "apply to" bit showing this folder, subfolders...etc)
If it's not working with either program then i suspect that's probably an ownership issue...if you force a change of ownership on the root folder to give the fileserver administrator ownership and tick the box to change all subcontainers and contents then tried running it again that might fix it (though it might also wipe the permissions you've just set, requring you to set them again) best off running that on the fileserver directly too as there's sometimes issues with doing it via a share or unc path.

Schoolboy error. Going to take another 5 hours to re-run the NTFS permission scripts again now...d'oh!
Thanks for your help!
No problems, good to hear you've got it solved :)
couldn't you have batch selected your users in AD and re point their home folder \\server\share\%username%\ and have it set the correct permissions again?
just a thought, untested...
Fixed. Rejoice in the highest!
