Wales is the same as England on this, so five years to GCSE or seven years if they stay on for sixth form.

England it is 5 to GCSEs, and then 2 more if they stay in that school for their 6th form. (which they may, or may not do).
In Scotland it is different.

5 years of secondary school followed by 2 years of 6th form or college.

England -
Year 7 to taking GCSEs in year 11, so 5 years.
Then separately years 12 & 13 for 6th form (A levels, IBDiploma, BTEC L2 or L3, etc)

PP is right to end of GCSEs. To the end of A levels includes years 12 and 13, so 7 years in total.

Dd did 6 in Scotland, but you can leave after 4.

7 if they stay for A Levels
5 if they stay until after G.C.S.Es
