Ty Mawr was an Approved School in Gilwern near Abergavenny, which was operated by Newport City Council between 1949 and 1993. An investigation under the name ‘Operation Flight‘ resulted in the conviction of a number of former members of staff for the sexual, physical and emotional abuse of children in their care.

In 2000, the former deputy principal Barrie Alden and a former housemaster John Wright were jailed for 15 years and 8 years respectively for offences against children in their care.
