    I'd suggest you don't launch the page automatically, it's bit intrusive and (as detailed) doesn't play well with most Popup Blockers. Instead, lone links on the page would be ideal.
    I've added links now for when the children inevitably close the windows and panic! I'm still unsure on whether I like the pop-ups or not, the main benefit of them (for me anyway) is that when I want them to move to a new website, I can just send it and it pops up at the front ready for them to use; the younger children in the school would struggle to find the home page and click a link without input.

    I also like the idea in the future of being able to remotely close windows when I want the children to move on; I've not figured out a good UX way of doing this though.

    I used to use bit.ly for this purpose but got fed up with having to get them to type several codes and on a couple of occasions the children mistyped the code with another valid code. The resulting website was, luckily, safe but I am under no illusions that there are some out there that could have been difficult to explain, even with a firewall in place!

    I take it if the teacher keeps adding url's to their session the students sessions will update to include the new url's

    Do the produced codes carry on working once the teacher has closed their browser?
    This is correct. Technically the code is generated against your IP address and won't generate a new one for 10 minutes, so you should be able to reopen your browser and click generate and it will just give you the same one that you can then keep adding to.

    I like the idea, any idea how it could be done usefully? Do you think copy and paste them all to one large text box, maybe comma or semi-colon separated?

    I was thinking of a copy and paste from a text file. Could you read the returns at the end of the URL? (show up as a backwards p in word if you turn on invisibles/non-printing characters)

    It would save time for the teacher if they could just paste a list they probably dont have time to paste them one by one.
