Charity Ngoma, Leonard Sakakombe, Rachel Kabeta


Abstract: This study examined the influence of head teachers’ leadership styles on school climate in selected secondary schools in Ndola district in Zambia. The study employed a descriptive study design which involved quantitative research. Random sampling was used to select the secondary schools and the 99 teachers. Purposive sampling was used to select the education administrators. The total study sample was 126. Questionnaires were used to collect data. SPSS Version 21 and Excel were used to analyze data through which descriptive statistics in form of statistical tables and charts were generated. The findings showed that the most prevalent leadership style in the selected secondary schools is the democratic leadership style. Eight out of the ten variables show that the most prevalent school climate in the selected schools was positive while 2 out of 10 variables showed that the school climate was negative. The above statistics revealed that the most prevalent school climate in the selected schools was positive. The findings further exhibited that there was a strong linear negative correlation (r = - 0.73) between the leadership style exhibited by Head teachers and School Climate in the selected secondary schools in Ndola district. (r = -.073, n = 126, p = 0.414). The value of p > 0.05, supported the null hypothesis of no relationship indicating that the relationship between leadership style and school climate was not statistically significant. The study recommends more capacity building training for head teachers in education management and leadership.
