ABSTRACT

The aim of this study was to find out the effects of women leadership on the performance of KCPE in public primary schools in Limuru Division of Kiambu District. Limuru Division is always ranked among the best divisions in the district followed by Kikuyu, Githunguri and Tigoni. Most of the schools in this division, are headed by women, hence the researcher was interested in finding out whether their leadership would be having any effects on the performance of the school and more so in the final exams. The researcher developed research questions to gather information of the study. One study found that the school headed by female head teacher were well organized in all aspects of administration and concluded that the school performed well because the female

head teachers used democratic leadership. This influenced performance in individual subjects and particularly in languages.

The study also recommended that the ministry of education needs to encourage use of democratic leadership in the management of school to enhance performance. This should be done by both male and female head teachers.
