At Chiltern Hills Academy we love to keep in touch with our Alumni through our CHA Linkedin network.

We celebrate their achievements and invite them to come back to school to speak to our students about their career path.

Recently former pupil, Brad White came back into school to talk about his journey in the Space industry following his MSc in Astrophysics and employment at European Astrotech. Students heard how Brad was recently stationed at the Space X facility fuelling a satellite which went up on the most recent transporter mission. The space industry is growing at an unprecedented rate with many wide range job opportunities.
