Adam Francois Jones was born in 1978 in West Yorkshire, England the first son of Francois Napoleon Jones and Barbara May Gammons.

He was educated at a local Junior School from the age of three until he was seven when he was sent to a boarding school with his twin sisters, Ruth and Rachael.

Adam was very small in stature at school until his late teens and unlike his siblings did not excel at sport, he was however an outstanding actor and singer.  Every year he took the leading role in school musicals such as HMS Pinafore and Jesus Christ Superstar.

He did however have a mischievous nature and his father was called to the school several times.  One of his pranks was to set part of a class room on fire, fortunately nobody was injured and the damage very slight.  He passed his common entrance examination to College at the age of 13.

At College, Adam passed 10 GCSE’s at the age of 16.  He continued his acting pastime made a number of short films and was offered a contract with the Leicester Playhouse which he declined.

Adam left College to take his A Levels at a state run school in West Yorkshite, close to the family home.  When he was 18 his mother Barbara came back into his life and gave him £ 5,000 (five thousand UK Pounds) and Adam decided to give up the academic life for the adventure of living on his own in a flat.

Following a one year break Adam returned to his studies and completed his Higher National Certificate in hotel management at University. As part of his course he spent one year working in hotel management at Martha’s Vineyard in Boston, Massachusetts in the USA.
