Can anyone please recommend any type of computer game for a student "Games Club"?
Obviously not any 18+ games,
No 3d acceleration, pretty low spec would be better.
Would need to be multiplayer on our network
If possible no "Console" or anything like that so they can enable GOD MODE etc etc
Free or very cheap !!!
If possible, restrictable and configurable - So they can only play with students in the room, not online
If possible have a "Camera or Spectator" that could highlight players on the projector
Thanks in advance!

You could argue these are too violent though.
There is a cartoony version of quake which may be more acceptable.

Try freecol.org and wesnoth.org for the more strategically minded youth
Diablo 2...preferably with the Lord of Destruction Expansion Pack.
Just recently got back into it and I can't believe that I haven't played it in so long. Shame on me. Anyways, it's fairly cheap and if you register it on Bethesda's website you can download the installer and you no longer need the CD to run it.
EDIT: As well as being online or single player, it can run over a LAN. We did this in computer club when I was at school. We dismantled cheap, brand new computers then reassembled them and set up a very basic LAN using static IPs. BTW don't think you actually need static IPs for running the game, just we had no DHCP.

Trackmania Nations/Forever, works on some old hardware (we even got it running okay on Intel 945G!), kids love it, non-violent, free.
I'll second MineCraft, been playing it for a few months now. Creative is gereat fun, although you may get the little rascal who likes to destroy instead of built.
Does require JAVA and probably 1GB RAM.
Other than that, OpenTTD is a good one. Could be a bit hardcore (well, it's a potentiall complex transport sim). Goes have cheats in single players but over LAN not.
+1 for Nexuiz - Home - A free open-source fast paced first person shooter (FPS) for Windows, Linux and OSX
although you may want to keep an eye on Xonotic - it is a new version of nexuiz which will be going into beta soon
Love nexuiz played it for years

We used to have Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory on the network until they banned it as being 'too violent'.......
