Gmina Siechnice is an urban-rural gmina (administrative district) in Wrocław County, Lower Silesian Voivodeship, in south-western Poland. Its seat is the town of Siechnice, which lies approximately 13 kilometres (8 mi) south-east of the county and regional capital, Wrocław.

Until 1 January 2010 the gmina was called Gmina Święta Katarzyna, and had its seat in the village of Święta Katarzyna, which is just to the west of Siechnice. (Now the only urban-rural gmina in Poland to have its seat in a village rather than its town is Gmina Nowe Skalmierzyce.)
