Something like this should do the trick. Just unscrew the sockets from the backplate.
We've got some mini bluetooth adapters recently and guess what! At least 10% have gone missing
Are there any cables that can plug into the internal USB header and provide an internal USB port?
Grab some of these USB Backplates > Maplin and unscrew the ports from the backplate. You can then install one per machine on a spare motherboard USB header and just velcro the port to the inside of a case. You can then plug in the adapters inside the case, I am not sure how well the signal will go through the metal case sides though. You may end up needing to install them behind a plastic front plate on the case to get the signal out.

Is there an echo in here?
Althogh the suggested idea should work, I doubt it'll work well due to the metal case as already pointed out. Bluetooth isn't that strong at all.
What exactly are you requiring Bluetooth for googlemad?
It really does depend on the thickness and just what is in the walls too. Metal on the other hand can deflect signals, hence reducing signal strength/quality. I'm not saying it's impossible, but the quality would be affected.It doesn't seem to be the case here, I can pick up pupils mobile phones in their bags through two walls!
For our cubase dongles we bought USB addon cards and they all came with one internal USB connection and that seemed to work.
Well luckily the machines had a perfect spot for the little circuit board, and it has lots of ventilation holes so the signal can get out quite well. Looped a cable tie round a sticky pad thing so it is fairly secure too.
Put it this way, with the case fully on it easily picked up my Bluetooth phone when I stuck it at the opposite end of the office! (And our office is fairly large!).
Considering the students in theory should be sat at the machines it therefore should be perfect
