Assembly and Careers Talk with Andrew McHutchon OH (2005)

Those that stand still are left behind.

Fifteen years after leaving Hampton, we were delighted to welcome back Andrew McHutchon OH (2005), who gave a fascinating insight into his career with McLaren Racing, when he joined us in assembly today.

After leaving Hampton, Andrew was awarded a PhD, Artificial Intelligence at the University of Cambridge before joining McLaren Racing as a Senior Data Scientist, where he’s worked for nearly six years.

Andrew spoke about his time at Hampton and advised current pupils to:

Aim high, target a job you enjoy and accept when you are wrong!

He also brought with him racing driver Fernando Alonso’s helmet and a retired racing car steering wheel for pupils to look at.

After Assembly, he was interviewed by Hampton Radio and took part in a Careers Lunch with pupils interested in an engineering career.
