The study sought to find out how female heads perform their duties as
administrators of Senior High schools to improve teaching and learning in the
Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis. Descriptive research design was used to conduct
the study. The population for the study consisted of heads of Senior High School
as well as teaching and non-teaching staffs. Questionnaire was designed and used
to collect data for the study. Purposive and simple random sampling techniques
were used to select a total sample size of 205 which included female heads and
teaching and non-teaching staffs. Statistical Product for Service Solution was used
to analyse the data. Percentages, means and standard deviations were used to
summarise the data.
The study revealed that female heads in the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis
made use of effective leadership styles to manage their schools. They related very
well with their subordinates and managed funds properly in their schools. They
assigned tasks and duties to their subordinates and effectively supervised the tasks
to ensure that they were properly carried out.
The conditions in the institutions were found to be very conducive and
allowed for effective management of the schools resulting in enhanced teaching
and learning. It was recommended that Regional, District Directors of education
and schools’ Board of Governors should use platforms provided by Parent
Teacher Associations (PTAs) to educate the staff and parents that the female
heads are not bossy and autocratic as they may think.
