Welcome to Saint Martin's Catholic Academy
GCSE Results Day - School will be open on Thursday from 10-12pm - Good luck!
Saint Martin's has a long tradition of providing the local community of Stoke Golding, Hinckley, Earl Shilton and beyond with a high quality academic, moral and spiritual education. Our mission is for pupils to learn about the best that has been thought and said and to know that they are loved.
Saint Martin's situated in the historic and beautiful Leicestershire village of Stoke Golding. We were founded by the Dominican’s over sixty years ago and we continue our commitment to providing an outstanding education founded upon a strong Christian ethos and a traditional Liberal Arts Education for all students.
As a successful and expanding school we will be developing significantly over the next few years. The first phase of our new building work has been completed with the development of a new English and Languages block, 'The Cloisters', commemorating the convent that stood near the site (Click here for more information) and we have recruited excellent teaching and support staff to ensure that our exceptionally high standards are maintained as we grow.

Summer Holidays 2016
We have now completed our first year as a full age range secondary school and I would sincerely like to thank the Year 11 students and their parents who have just left Saint Martin’s. Our first Year 11 students set a wonderful example for the rest of the school and I am immensely grateful for the trust these pupils and their families put in Saint Martin’s to deliver at GCSE level. Our hope and expectation is for some great results this August. We wish them every blessing in the next stage of their education and they will be missed. I would also like to thank the staff at Saint Martin’s who have worked exceptionally hard over the last two years to set up and deliver the GCSE courses. Teachers have put in many additional hours after school, at weekends and in holidays to support our pupils. For more news and events this term click here for the newsletter. Wishing everyone and restful, blessed and safe summer Holiday.

Zimbabwe Connecting Classrooms Partnership
We have been awarded a grant by the British Council to develop a link with a school overseas. We have partnered up with a sister Dominican School, Saint Dominic’s just outside Harare, Zimbabwe. The school was founded by the same South African Kings William Town Dominican Sisters who founded Saint Martin’s in the 1940s. Mrs Lynch-Kelly and Mr Noon visited Zimbabwe at the beginning of the summer holidays. They linked up with an orphanage that we hope to support as a school community: the Mother of Peace Orphanage was set up in 1994 to help orphans living with or affected AIDS/HIV.
