Fairfield is a suburb in the north-west of the town of Stockton-on-Tees within the borough of the same name and ceremonial county of Durham, England. Fairfield was originally the site of a field which hosted a fair, hence its name. Though it is now a suburb, it remains one of the town's greener areas. The south of the suburb was developed first, so the housing in northern Fairfield is more modern. The suburb is home to several schools and a small library.

Education

Fairfield has one infant school (Rosehill), one junior school (Holy Trinity, fed by Rosehill), and two primary schools: Fairfield Primary School and St. Patrick's Roman Catholic Primary School. It has two secondary schools: Our Lady and St Bede Catholic Academy, and Ian Ramsey Church of England Academy. It is also home to Stockton Sixth Form College. The Grangefield Academy is technically in the Fairfield ward, but the neighbouring Grangefield estate is in the Newtown ward, not Fairfield Fairfield.
