Stainton is a village in Middlesbrough, in the borough of Middlesbrough and the ceremonial county of North Yorkshire, England. It is in the local ward and civil parish of Stainton and Thornton, and had a population of approximately 2,300 as of 2005.

Stainton is one of the few areas within the boundaries of modern-day Middlesbrough to have been named in the Domesday Book of 1086. Indeed, it has been a settlement since pre-Saxon times, while its name reveals it to have been an area of Scandinavian residence.

Stainton Church dates back to the 12th century. The Stainton Inn pub, on Meldyke Lane, was first licensed in 1897, celebrating its centenary in 1997.
