TitleShrewsbury School
DescriptionIn March 1981 Thompson was replaced as the Royal Society representative on the Governing Body of the school by Sir Peter Swinnerton-Dyer. He was invited to continue to serve as a co-opted member until his 75th birthday. There is no record of Thompson's original appointment to the Governing Body.
The material consists chiefly of committee papers including headmaster's reports and accounts. There is a little correspondence usually about meetings, but including a brief exchange, December 1981 - January 1982, concerning a possible visit to China by a Shrewsbury School football team.
