Gardam was born on 14 January 1956 to the novelist Jane Gardam. He studied at Rokeby Preparatory School, Westminster School and Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, where he obtained a double first in English.
He subsequently worked at the BBC (where he created Timewatch and edited Newsnight), and as director of programmes at Channel 4. He was then appointed by the Department of Culture, Media and Sport to lead a review of digital radio in Britain.
In January 2008, he began a three-year term on the board of Ofcom, the independent regulatory authority for the UK communications industries. He was subsequently reappointed for a second three-year term.
In 2004, he was elected Principal of St Anne's College, Oxford, succeeding Ruth Deech. He described his "greatest contribution to tertiary education" as overseeing the construction of the St Anne's Coffee Shop (STACS). In early 2016, Gardam announced that he would be stepping down as principal at the end of the academic year, in order to become chief executive of the Nuffield Foundation.
