I've found a list of all books that GCSE students may read based on the different exam boards but no lists about what books from that list people actually had to read in school.

Do you mean the books students have to read for their English literature GCSE?

For GCSE English we did, as I recall: Jane Eyre, Of Mice and Men, Romeo & Juliet, The Caretaker (play by Pinter), Lord of the Flies, Edward Scissorhands, Rear Window (Hitchcock version/original), and some poetry anthology we were assigned (I don't recall anything in it we did specifically except I think one of Shakespeare's sonnets).

The films might've been part of English language, rather than literature. Most of the other English classes did Macbeth rather than R&J though.

Yes. I did the IGCSE so that was the only exam one, We also Studied Macbeth and Kindertransport but that was coursework. TKAM was the exam.
