Fairfield is a suburb of Stockton-on-Tees within the borough of Stockton-on-Tees and ceremonial county of County Durham, England. It is situated to the north-west of the town centre.

Fairfield was originally the site of a field which hosted a fair, hence its name. It is now a suburb of Stockton-on-Tees and no longer a village. It is one of Stockton's greener areas, but is not as affluent as neighbouring Hartburn. The northern part of Fairfield is newer than the southern, and so is more affluent.

Fairfield has a number of local amenities. There are several schools, Fairfield Primary School, St Patrick's Roman Catholic Primary School, Our Lady and St. Bede's Catholic Secondary School and Ian Ramsey Church of England Secondary School. Next to Ian Ramsey School is Fairfield Library.

A green belt divides the suburb from neighbouring Hartburn to the south, while at the other, northerly end, Fairfield ends abruptly at the edge of the town.
