[pfSense] 2 LANs and time based limits

We've got a pfSense 2.0.1 box with a single WAN (in fact it's behind a load balancer with 6 ADSL modems) and currently a single set of client machines which are students' computers in their appartments.
We are planning to add a second set of client machines to this pfSense box, which are computers in our classrooms.
Actually, and for several years now, we used 2 separate pfSense boxes, with 2 separate sets of modems, but we'd like to consolidate this onto a single box (with the future option of having a second box acting as an instant failover)
So in the setup we envision all machines must share the single WAN interface for Internet access.
Our classrooms computers must have dedicated bandwidth from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., for example they could have the bandwidth equivalent of 5 (of our 6) ADSL modems, guaranteed, during this period of time, each day from Monday to Friday. The remaining bandwidth should be dedicated to the appartments' computers.
Outside of these periods of time, the total available bandwidth should be available for both sets of computers, with an equal share of it, i.e. just as if we don't do anything special.
Is this possible with pfSense and if yes please could someone tell me how to proceed ?
Thanks in advance
