The present study aimed at finding out the gender difference in leadership style among school students. The study was conducted using simple random sample of 200 male and female (N=100 each) school students from the population of 980 school students from Jaffna. The tool used in the study was the Revised Version of Leadership Behaviour Description Questionnaire (Sergiovanni, Metzues and Burden, 1969). The Questionnaire was administered to the students by uniform instructions. The data was analyzed using mean, SD, and‘t’ ratio statistics. The findings of the study reveal that male school students have more ‘concern for task’ leadership style and the female school students have more ‘concern for people’ leadership style compared to their counterparts.
