SMMA Sixth Form Students Visit McLaren Formula 1 HQ.Posted on: 13th Jan 2022
St Mary Magdalene Academy Sixth Form students got a special shoutout from Formula 1 drivers Daniel Ricciardo and Lando Norris, on a fantastic trip to the McLaren Technology Centre last term.
Our SMMA Business Insights students enjoyed viewing the McLaren workshop and seeing the historic line of racing cars from Bruce McLaren's original car, through the classic Lauda, Senna and Prost eras to Hamilton's World Championship winner, and even a Lego McLaren! Hosted by McLaren's STEM Ambassadors, our students gained careers and life advice including, 'business is increasingly looking for skills gained in a variety of ways, and even those with university degrees need to show they have the capacity for hard work, dedication, motivation and teamwork’.
You can see lots of great pictures from the day in the gallery below.
