Call for support for Carrick McClean school student barred from A-Levels due to having a beard

Mr Carrick Mcclean has been barred from his A-level* classes at St Columb’s College in Derry because of his facial hair. Please sign the petition to have him reinstated. I’m sure such blatant pogonophobic discrimination would not be tolerated in a United Ireland.

*for readers in the Republic, the A-level is the Protestant Leaving Certificate.

Call for support for Carrick McClean, school student barred from A-Levels due to having a beard

The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has called for support for a Derry Sixth Form student Carrick McClean.

Mr McClean has been banned from sitting for his A Level at St Columbs in Derry because he has a beard.

The pogonophobic rules of the school do not allow students to have a beard

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, this is not the 1950s and we fully support Mr McClean. There is a petition that can be signed and we expect a change of mind by the school
