Lectern for Hall
We currently have a setup in the hall with a computer and sound system. The projector acts as the splitter. The Main hall is used for classroom teaching.
The Head wants to introduce a mobile Lecturn from which he can talk from, control the computer but also read the display without having to turn around.
Now I know how we can set up a wireless Keyboard, Mouse and Microphone, but is it possible to have a wireless display?
How do you do it in your school?

Something like SMART Podium interactive pen display - SMART Technologies?
I've never seen one of these, let alone used one, but I think it's what you're after - or at least, will narrow down your actual requirement
Not bloody cheap though, as far as I know.
EDIT: that isn't wireless though. Only wireless option I can think of is an iPad, I'm afraid - there was a program we found (can't recall it) that essentially presented the iPad's display as a webpage hosted by the iPad, so then you navigate to that IP:Port on the computer and you can see what the iPad sees. We never tested this in the end, as far as I'm aware, as a teacher was just asking if it was possible with her personal kit, but it might work for you. No idea if a similar app exists for Android.

We built a 19" rack on wheels in which we put a CD player, Mixer, PC (wireless network), fixed boom mic, two wireless receivers and a lockable draw. We then got our DT department to build a lovely lectern around it, and mount a monitor within it.
Users just need to plug a VGA cable, power and two xlrs into the lectern to get it going. They grab a key for the drawer from the office, which gives them access to the projector remote and the belt packs.

A member of the Science Department is playing with AppleTV with this in mind today however I am not involved. He seems to be happy to demonstrate it to staff after school today.

Could get a networked projector? We've done this (epson) and install a client onto a laptop when needed. We have also ran a VGA cable to the projector just in case, and haven't sorted the audio going through the projector, but I'm sure its possible and fairly easy.

This is coming to market soon... Asus Transformer - AIO
Amazing possibilities.... It is a Windows 8 pc and when you detach the screen it turns into an Android Tablet that can control the PC....

To add, the computer is permanent so I wanted a wireless monitor viewer to view the computer. I have tried VNC which works fine when on a standalone laptop, something is blocking it on the RM network, possibly a port or exception needs to be added.
So for me, its going down the iPad route, we have them already and as this will be used scarcely I didnt really want to pay too much for it.
