    Depended on the class. In the compulsory classes, ie English, Maths, Science, ICT, RS there were about 25-30 pupils. In the option classes, there were about 20 in my History, Music etc; in the really small ones there were about 14 (Spanish).

    As others have said, it depends on your school and what subject. The more popular subjects at my school were English and Psychology, with about 15 students in them. Then there were subjects like Music, that only had myself and one other in!

    I'm at a school (sixth form); it might be different for Colleges. Also, there might be more than one class for the most popular courses, such as English for example at my school.

    Wow, in my college, my classes are so much bigger compared to you lot, but I guess it also depends on the subject..

    About 200 in general studies, about 30 per class in all the other subjects. Further maths was half the size by the time we finished though! People were dropping like flies -- death by integration!
