Maths
Single science (band 2 & 3)
Double science (band 1)
Citizenship
Short course GCSE PE (band 1)
OCR national diploma in ICT
Statistics (set 1 maths)
Work related learning (band 3)

If you're in band 3 or 1 you get three options. If you're in band 2 you get four.
You can also do extra GCSEs after school (depending on teacher), these include:

Business & Communication Systems

French

Most people have (or equivalent to) in between 10-14 GCSEs. A girl in my year will have 17 (She is doing the full OCR National Diploma equivalent to four)

We had 5 I think...

-Full course RS
-English Literature (Top 3 sets only)
-English Language
-Maths (Statistics as well for top set)
-Double Science (This was 3 years ago top set do single sciences now I think)
-Not for me but now my old high school makes you do Short Course ICT and Citzenship as well
-Back in my day, 4 options, the only restriction was you could only have a max of 2 from one subject area (Humanties, Languages, Business & ICT, Sports and perfomance arts and Art, Design and Technology) including at least 3 subject areas.
-Some people did Art and Deign after school and my mate form Mexico did a Spanish GCSE in year 7 and obviously got an A*

(Original post by im so academic)
in your school, are there any gcses that are compulsory to do -

excluding the obvious maths, english and science

also how many gcses are you allowed to do, and how many of those are your free options
The compulsory fields vary, depending on which school you go to. You should ask your head of year.

At mine, the obligatory GCSEs are (excluding Maths, English Lang & Science): English Literature, a language (French, German or Spanish) and a technology (Res Mat, IT, Textiles, Graphics or Engineering). I think that was about it - I managed to opt out of the school's 'compulsory' tech though, I did Latin instead!
