Drop this into the SQL view of a new query.

Select [Class name], [Gender], Count([lastname]) as NumberOfStudents
From MyTable
Group By [Class Name], [Gender]

Substitute you own table name and field to count

Don't accept this as an answer.  I am using Pete's solution to make a list of student with gender totals on the top of list for class selected:

Select [Class name], [Gender] From MyTable Union Select "<Total (Male/Female):" As [Class name], DCount("*","MyTable","Gender='Male'") & "/" & DCount("*","MyTable","Gender=Female") As Gender From MyTable Where [Class name] = IIF(NZ(Forms!MyForm!txtClassName,"")<>"",[Class name],Forms!MyForm!txtClassName) Order By [Class name]

If you leave txtClassName on form MyForm blank, it will make list for all classes.
