Adrian was Head Boy at the College in 1965, and was also Talbot House Captain. In addition he was 1st XV Captain and a 1st XI cricketer.

After leaving the College, Adrian studied medicine at Jesus College, Cambridge and St Mary's Hospital, Paddington before becoming one of the founding GP members of the Parkbury House practice in St Albans. He retired from general practice at the age of 38 to join the Army where he re-trained as a Psychiatrist and served with distinction in the first Gulf War.
