Saint Martin's Catholic Academy (formerly Saint Martin's Catholic High School) is a coeducational 11-16 secondary school with academy status, located in Stoke Golding, near to Hinckley, Leicestershire, England. It is part of the Diocese of Nottingham, and is built on the same grounds as the former Dominican nunnery. The school is named after Saint Martín de Porres. The 2012 Ofsted Report has said that St-Martins is an 'outstanding' school.

History The Dominican Sisters, who are the trustees, founded Saint Martin’s Catholic School. The school opened as a Voluntary Aided High School in September 1963. Prior to that date, it had been a Private School. The original building was adapted and extended to give the present structure set in spacious grounds.
