dc.description.abstract This study explores leadership in schools and its impact in grade twelve results productive school culture, and focuses on school leadership at selected schools in the Sekgosese West Circuit at Capricorn District in the Limpopo Province. Leadership plays a vital role in the functioning of any organisation, be it in business or in education, and the concept of leadership has become more prominent over the last decade. In order to develop a better understanding of leadership, a literature review is conducted. This review highlights the differences between leadership and management, and explores different leadership styles. This study finds that leadership challenges pose a serious threat to the attainment of good results in grade twelve (12) in Sekgosese West Circuit. These challenges emanate from a variety of factors such as lack of discipline, dysfunctional School Management Team, Involvement of parents, culture of teaching and learning, curriculum and possible solutions to leadership. Further, administering schools in a democratic fashion still pose tremendous challenges to the school leadership as a whole. It seems as if some schools which are part of this investigation still struggle to adjust to a democratic dispensation. This research therefore concludes that school leaders need to ensure that they are both good managers and effective leaders. They must also ensure that the culture at their schools is conducive for teaching and learning. en_US
