If you are running Server 2008 you could look at Application Streaming. Effectively like running a terminal server without the need to log in. You could install Office 2007 on the workstations, and 2003 on the server to present the apps to the workstations when needed.

I thought about this and it should work, apart from when students need to do their online assessments using a system called Litmus.
Basically, there is some software installed on each PC which works with the installed Office apps to assess students' ability to run through a certain set of tasks in a given Office app.
These tests would need to work with both 2003 and 2007 versions of the Office apps. If a student wanted to do a test on Office 2003, then it wouldn't be able to find the 2003 app locally, and wouldn't work.
That's of course assuming that the Litmus system cannot be run in Terminal Services sessions, so that may be worth looking into. However, even if it can be, we may then need to purchase additional TS CALs. Sheesh things are never simple are they.
