Percy the Penguin cartoon mascotThis website is the result of a collaborative project involving the education outreach team, librarians and web designers from Newcastle University Library, and teachers, school librarians and sixth from students from two schools in the North East of England, along with a graphic designer / cartoonist.

The website is aimed at Key Stage 5 teachers, and contains activities that will enable their students to develop the skills they need to become independent researchers, helping them with their sixth form studies and easing the transition from school or college to higher education.
