I want to buy a computer, for homework and minecraft, for less than £300 in the UK. Where can I find one?

I want to get my twins (both twelve) a reasonably priced computer to share. This will be used for homework (wordprocessing and internet), for email, and for minecraft (apparently this needs to be 40fps - but I am not sure if this is actually important, or what it means), for sims, and for other computer games.
I use a computer for work, and purchase work computers but don't really game. Googling "cheap computers for minecraft" leads me into a thicket of 'build your own' / 'you need a XYZ graphics card' forum posts I don't really understand enough to make sense of.
I am in the UK. I would like to spend less than £300. I don't have the skills or time to build my own computer so want a already assembled one. Small form factor would be nice but isn't essential. I think it probably needs to be windows (for game reasons). It needs to run minecraft / other games at a good speed. It needs to last for at least 3 years.
I already have a monitor (17 inch LCD), keyboard, and mouse.
What computer should I buy? (or am I looking for a unicorn and need to change some of my parameters)
