Maidstone Intermediate is situated in park-like grounds just south of Upper Hutt City overlooked by the Akatarawa, Remutaka and Tararua Ranges. The school is approximately 30 minutes north-east of Wellington, and on the doorstep of many facilities and community centres such as H2O Extreme, Kaitoke Regional Park, Expressions Whirinaki Arts and Entertainment Centre and Staglands Wildlife Reserve.

The Maidstone name comes from the town of Maidstone in Kent (England) where a group of Upper Hutt settlers came from. The school opened in 1970.
