The total number of hours taught for each subject are available here: https://explore-education-statistics.service.gov.uk/data-tables/permalink/e2daf3ac-54a6-4b06-16e6-08dc75fe4005.

Timetabled teaching is reported for a typical week in November, as determined by the school. It does not cover an entire year of teaching. If there are variations in timetabling across the year, this is not covered in the data available to the department.

Subject taught is only collected from secondary schools that use electronic timetabling software that can produce data in the format required. Data is then weighted to provide national totals. Breakdowns by local authority and parliamentary constituency are not available.
