First, I'd check with the school and see if the idea will fly with them. It may not. In particular, if you organize a "club" ride, does that then become a school activity, require school personnel along, subject them to liability, etc? It may not be any problem, but then again it may, and you need to find that out first.
Next, you need people. Pretty much everything else you do depends on who you get. If you have 2 people, not much of a club and you're done. Or if you get 2 BMX'ers, 2 road guys, 2 mountain bike guys, etc., you don't have much to work with.
For tools, wait and see who you have in your club. If nobody knows how to use a tool, or if the only person that knows how or is interested in learning, already has one, there's no use in buying it. So you may not need as many tools as you think.
A bike stand is useful on some bikes, kind of pointless on others, so once again, works best to see what you have.
Where do the tools stay when you're not using them, by the way?
