In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, this once tiny village passed from Stokesley Rural District, to Middlesbrough Rural District and was eventually incorporated into the county borough of Middlesbrough during the early 20th century.
Acklam Road runs directly through Acklam, and just off Acklam Road is Hall Drive. The previous focus of the parish was the residence of the Hustler family, the Restoration mansion of Acklam Hall, this shown in maps of the pre-industrial area—such as the 1714 Lordship of Acklam Plan—in the nearby Dorman Museum in Linthorpe. The house, formerly a grammar school and Middlesbrough's sole Grade I listed building, had ceased to be the Acklam Campus of Middlesbrough College by the middle of 2008.
Acklam schools, include Kader Primary School, Acklam Grange Secondary School, Outwood Academy Acklam, Acklam Whin Primary School and St Clare's Primary School, on Trimdon Avenue. Acklam Grange Secondary School was previously Stainsby Secondary Modern School, named as such in 1952 after the mediaeval settlement of Stainsby.
