Mr A R Thompson, a graduate of St John's College, Cambridge, became the second Headmaster of the School. His previous appointment had been that of a housemaster at Bedford Modern School, and he acknowledged the "family atmosphere" that prevailed at Dunstable on his arrival, and the "outstanding personalities" he found on the staff, especially Mr Brown and Mr Apthorp. Among Mr Thompson's primary aims for the school were to improve the overall academic performance, and to persuade more boys to stay on in the Sixth Form, in an area of excellent employment prospects for school leavers. It is interesting to note here that Mr Thring, in one of his last official speeches, had also stated that the sixteenth to eighteenth years of a boy's life, in his opinion, were vital ones for his education. Mr Thompson found some of the classrooms and school furniture in a dilapidated state and a school that was "bursting at the seams". Renovation and extension work were badly needed.
...
After six years in Dunstable, Mr Thompson left for Solihull School. His legacy to Dunstable was the "New Block" of classrooms, as well as a second Fives Court, improved Science labs, and electric lighting throughout. His successor was A F R Evans, an ex Naval Officer from Stamford School.

In October, 1944, Mr Harris, who had been in charge of School House for many years, left to take up an appointment at Solihull with his earlier Headmaster, Mr Thompson.
