Modern Curriculum in English Public Schools

The memories have been very helpful getting a general impression of how the education system works, but I still have a few of specific questions that I've been able to find answers for, searching here or on Google (search terms: english schools modern curriculum, latin in english schools, british/english school curriculum latin, etc). I suspect my Google-fu is weak today, but anyhow...

1. How common is it for students to be taking Latin? Is it compulsory at any particular schools, or would it be more likely to be just another option for foreign language?

2. For a student taking a course in literature, what is the format of the class likely to be like? Will students be expected/encouraged to discuss and comment upon the text during class, or would a teacher be more likely to approach it from a lecture perspective?

3. Are teachers likely to refer to students by their first names, or by their surnames?

My brain is so broken today, and I apologize if these are ridiculously obvious questions. Thanks in advance, if you have any information to offer or a nudge in the right direction.
