Data collected was coded, tallied and reduced into frequencies and percentages using Computer packages. Analysis was done using SPSS for analysing quantitative data, EPI-DATA for analysing qualitative data and Microsoft Excel computer packages focusing on the responses from the research questions. The findings indicated that the participatory leadership is commonly used in schools (majority (44%) This was attributed to the fact that leadership involved many people such as student leaders, deputy heads, team leaders, and class teachers. Democratic style of management was the commonly practiced style by the school managers.
