The researcher conducted the study to obtain its objective regarding the leading role of secondary school teachers of Lahore in curricular and co-curricular activities and their effect on students’ performance, promoting academic and technical skills in students through curricular and co-curricular activities. In order to conduct the study causal-comparative research design was used by the researcher. A questionnaire of five point Likert scale was used to collect data from the teacher of private and public secondary schools of one Tehsil of Lahore, Pakistan. Simple random sampling technique was used and both male and female teachers of public and private secondary schools were given equal chance so as every individual in the population was open to be accessed. It was concluded that curricular and co-curricular activities encourage teachers as in leading role and, students openly discuss their academic problems with teachers to have better performance. Whereas, harmony among the teacher and students exists while interacting in the class during academic activities whereas, most of the students are shy and in fear to interact in co-curricular activities. A strong leadership of teacher in the class or outside the class make students better leader. Teachers think students having the most involvement in co-curricular activities have high social skills whereas; students who are not interested to be involved in co-curricular activities have high academic achievement.
