If you work a week in hand you receive the previous week's wages each week. When you leave, you'll get that week's wages and the previous one too, so �520 in total.
This was standard practice when I worked in factories. They paid in cash then, and you had to go back to your old workplace the week after you left to pick up your last week's pay.
Some ppl seem to completely mis understand this 'week in hand' situation. You basically get paid a week after working, hence in week 25 you will be paid for week 24. When you leave you will be paid for the week previous, not the first week in the company !
