Some prominent community leaders, including the Sultan Abdul Samad, Kapitan Cina (Chinese Captain) of Kuala Lumpur, Yap Kwan Seng, towkay Loke Yew, and Thamboosamy Pillay proposed to set up a similar school modelled after RI to provide a premier English-medium education for boys in Kuala Lumpur. With the support of the British Resident of Selangor, the foundation stone of the Victoria Institution was laid in 1893. The school opened in July 1894. The name of the school commemorates the Golden Jubilee of Queen Victoria.
