case with thumb screws
I have just had some Fujitsu computers come in and they have thumb screws and not proper ones...
It used to be the case that (in bucks at lease) a computer in a classroom had to have proper screws or something preventing it from being opened by had without tools. Is that the case nationally or at least in Norfolk? If so I need some padlocks quick!

I've not heard that before and it's a little difficult bearing in mind most modern desktop PCs come with thumb screws. You can (usually) still tighten thumb screws using a screwdriver which should stop most people.
So long as the PCs are facing the right way and cables tidied as best as possible I think there's a little more you can do. Pupils should always be supervised anyway.

This or can you not replace them with standard screws?

I'm pretty sure (taking off the case off some HPs) the screws are/were slightly smaller than usual.

Cable tie the slot for the pad lock.

Padlocks will give you more security than cable ties (might not be necessary - depends on how enterprising your kids are!)
Hills components do a variety of padlocks - eg these are about £2 each and are keyed alike (so you don't have to worry about hundreds of keys!)
