Abstract: 
This paper focuses on the stress levels of school administrators in Singapore. A sample of principals, vice principals and heads of department participated in the study, using the Occupational Stress Indicator. In comparison with a British non native group of managers, the Singapore sample reported significantly greater pressure at work and consequently, significantly higher levels of mental and physical ill health. They had higher Type A scores and their perceptions of control were mainly external. They also used more coping strategies. However they also reported significantly higher levels of job satisfaction. To explore the extent to which sources of pressure, coping skills, individual differences (type A, locus of control) and background variables (age group, gender and marital status) are predictive of job satisfaction, mental and physical health, multiple regression analyses were carried out. STEPWISE regression identified sources of pressure and locus of control as
significant predictors of job satisfaction, mental and physical health. Age group and coping skills were also significant predictors of job satisfaction.
