    Hammerhead is always a favourite - it's a free rhythm generator available at www.threechords.com/hammerhead . Even less bother is www.rinki.net/pekka/monkey - a free online rhythm generator - no install required.

    If you want more 'traditional' sequencing software, you can get a stripped down educational version of Cubase for about £50 a computer, but if you're moving I'd check what's happening with your computers etc (if it's anything like my school's move, it'll involve you getting all new computers, hopefully with some software bundled in).
  2. Here are a two:
    Mulab - type of sequencer which is free - kids love it.
    Be careful with cubase as it can have latency probs on PCs - gave up at my last school. Make sure you have good ICT technicians who know about music stuff too. We use the cubase 5 which is good but expensive for 16 computers.
    Good luck
