Top 5 ways to Celebrate After Exams

School is almost over and so are exams. The stress of revision will soon be a fading memory. It’s nearly time for a well-earned break! But how are you going to fill your spare time over the summer?

Spending all day in your pyjamas watching Netflix might sound like heaven, but there are only so many boxsets to watch. Here’s some Summer inspiration from our top five things to do once exams are finally over…


If you’ve been stuck indoors for the past few months with only a pile of books for company, it’s time to make the most of the sunshine!

Get your friends together for a picnic in the park or a chilled BBQ in your back garden. Play sports or go camping.

If that sounds too exhausting you can laze around in the garden with a good book. Just don’t forget the sun cream!


It doesn’t have to be expensive and you don’t have to go far. Snap up discount coach and train tickets by booking early or using a railcard.

Get a group of friends together and go and visit a city you’ve never been to. Be tourists for the day. Or hop on a cheap flight to Europe and practice your language skills!


Is there a guitar lying neglected in the corner of your room? Or a camera gathering dust on the shelf? Use this free time to improve your skills, or just try out something new.

Learn origami. Start baking. Finally finish that soon-to-be best seller novel you’ve been working on. Now is the time to stretch your creative muscles.


If music’s your thing then there’s a tonne of festivals to choose from both UK and abroad!

From house to folk, there’s something for everyone. Check out what’s on our doorstep, as British festivals once again live up to the expectation.


Let’s face it, exam season is pretty stressful. Appreciate the healing powers of a lie-in, become re-acquainted with your onesie and enjoy the lack of responsibility and empowering nothingness that follows.
