ABSTRACT The study sought to examine the impact of managerial competence s of Heads of department on students’ academic performance in secondary schools in Kamuli municipality, Kamuli district. The main objective of the study was thus; to examine the influence of Team building competences by HoDs on students’ academic performance, to assess the influence of planning competences by HoDs on students’ academic performance, to analyze the influence of organizing competences by HoDs on students’ academic performance, to determine the influence of co-ordinating competences by HoDs on students’ academic performance as well as to determine the influence of monitoring and evaluation competences by HoDs on students’ academic performance in Kamuli municipality in Kamuli district, Uganda. From the literature review, the conceptual framework was drawn based on a set of five attributes, which may have had impact on students’ academic performance. They were namely; Team building, planning, organizing, co-ordinating and monitoring and evaluation which fonned the dependent variables. The study recommends that HoDs should progressively and continually grow in their knowledge; skills and competence by concentrating on on-going professional development programs, to enable them stimulate and nurture their own professional growth and that of other teachers. Evidently, teachers to grow their knowledge skills and competences throughout their career hence instead of concentrating on programs that donate single training event, HoDs should concentrate on a set of course, individual learning projects, conferences, group discussion, problem solving activities, case studies and stimulation exercises. This would eventually translate into enhanced students’ academic performance in the schools.
