Abstract: The study sought to establish the effects of ban on holiday teaching on academic performance in secondary schools in Soroti Municipality. This study aimed to establish the effect of abolishing holiday teaching on academic performance in secondary schools, students’ perception of the ban on holiday teaching practice and identify strategies schools have adopted to offer remedial classes in secondary schools in Soroti Municipality. The research method adopted was descriptive cross sectional research design using both quantitative and qualitative approaches. The researcher used sample of senior three students, teachers and head teachers answer sample size of 175 respondents. Quantitative data analysis was done using descriptive statistics and Pearson chi-square tests at a 0.05 level of significance. The questionnaires and interview guide were the data collection instruments. The study found out that the ban on holiday teaching tuition did not negatively affect academic performance in secondary schools in Soroti Municipality. The study established that holiday teaching was stressful; most students had little interest in it and could fatigue them. The study established that holiday teaching was a strategy for syllabus coverage. It was therefore recommended that: the MoE&S strengthens its surveillance team to prevent the practice, the MoE&S strongly and impartiall enforces the policy on holiday teaching practice, and the MoE&S gives a circular to head teachers identifying general strategies for remedial classes for all schools to observe in the teaching time, that there is need to reduce syllabus content to manageable levels.
