Jeremy Clarkson was born on April 11, 1960, in Doncaster, England to Shirley and Edward. His parents put Clarkson's name down years in advance for private school, with no idea of how they were going to afford the tuition.
Clarkson has said that he was badly bullied and very unhappy while a student at Repton School. He attended Repton School at the same time as former "Top Gear" Executive Producer Andy Wilman and Formula One engineer Adrian Newey.
