9 ways to celebrate on exam results day
Message to Year 11 and Year 13: we know you’re getting stressed already. We’ve all been there. Sometimes you get the grades you need, and sometimes you don’t. And even if you do come up with the goods, you can be assured that at least one of your friends will be disappointed. Which can make results day conversations just very awkward. So get planning for something fun to do once the grades are in. That way, whatever happens you’ve got an event to look forward to and something else to talk about! And if nothing else, at least you can celebrate the fact that the waiting and the stress are well and truly over...
Here are our top suggestions for exam results day celebrations:
Get your heartbeat racing and take your mind right off those grades with some thrilling adventure rides with your best mates.
If you’re lucky enough to be near The Lake District, Ben Nevis or Snowdonia, do something magnificent and see the view from up high. Conquer the world and have something to talk about later!
Nobody in the UK is more than 70 miles from the coast! Plan a day out with friends with bodyboards, beach cricket and sun cream. Or if you prefer, take a hike on one of the coastal paths and blow away all the exam stress you’ve taken on for the last 12 months.
The perfect random activity for mid-summer in the UK. Embrace the insanity with a group of equally off-piste buddies.
Don’t have a hot tub? Book one now! If you get a big one and all chip in, it’s affordable and lots of laughter guaranteed.
Most historic cities like Oxford or Statford have a ghost tour, which will give you and your friends a bit of knowledge and the creeps at the same time!
You can take teams of up to 24 into one of the escape rooms around the country. You’re given a mission and a themed room you must explore to find hints and clues. Some are horror themed, but they are most of all genuinely fun and a great way to take your mind off exam results!
Find the biggest piece of public green space near you and invite everyone you know to a massive picnic. Bring food, drinks, a bluetooth speaker and some tunes that won’t upset everyone else nearby too much! Try and invite at least one friend whose family has a gazebo to lend you, in case the rain decides to turn up to try to spoil the fun.
Forget the slog of your studies and have a night to remember with one of our murder mystery dinner parties! For this age group we recommend our spy story, ‘The Spy who came in with a Cold’ or ‘My Deadly Valentine’, set in the roaring 20s, or a teen version of our popular hen night murder mystery, ‘Murder in the League of Supergirls’. Get planning now!
