ABSTRACT

The research study sought to find the factors contributing to poor performance in English at

ordinary level in rural schools in Umguza district. Qualitative research design was used. It enabled

the researcher to look at various aspects of the study in their natural setting. Purposive sampling

was used to select school heads, English teachers and ordinary level pupils who participated in the

study. The researcher used interview and observation guides as well as document analysis to

generate data. Data generated was analysed using thematic analysis approach. Some of the factors

contributing to poor performance were, pupils’ negative attitude and shortage of teaching and

learning resources. Some of the recommendations were that teachers should reward pupils who

speak English as a way of motivation and that schools should engage in fundraising activities to

mobilise teaching and learning resources.
