You will find Thorps in the academy after you give him the key, but he will be dead when you come across him. You will find his body at the Schoolhouse Classroom Site of Grace.

However, if one should die before they can retrieve the lost runes, they’ll be lost forever.

You could of course also leave them be, so they live forever in your game. But even if they die at least they died chasing whatever they wanted in live, death is inevitable for everyone and what is living without having a goal. Of the sorceries that Thops can sell, only Starlight is unique to his inventory. Glintstone Pebble and Glintstone Arc can also be purchased from another NPC in the Limgrave region.

If provoked, Thops wields a Carian Glintstone Staff, which he uses to cast Glintstone Pebble. Interestingly, the staff he uses in combat is different from the staff he drops on death. The major benefit of donating the runes to Thops is what happens after you give him the key to the Academy of Raya Lucaria.
In this way, they are best used to "bank" runes that you can wait to use when you seek to level up or purchase certain items. I gave him the glinstone key and then killed him to see what happens. On death he said, "Raya…Lucaria…the home of my studies."
