The Department for Education does not define GCSE subjects as ‘technical’ or ‘creative’.

Provisional information on the proportion of pupils entered for at least one arts GCSE between 2009/10 and 2015/16 is published as part of the ‘Provisional GCSE and equivalent results in England’ statistical first release (SFR)[1].
