In 1882 the school became a Board School, in 1905 became Cyffyliog Council School and later Ysgol Cyffylliog.
Gyffylliog school opened in 1855, established by the National Society near the church. In 1905 the school became Cyffyliog Council School and moved to a new building (See plan CD/A/4/79).
The school began as a church school under the auspices of the National Society. Before this time there had been a school at nearby Ty-drawlr-afon. It was a mixed, bilingual junior and infants school.
In 1882 a board school was set up in the village, known as Gyffylliog Board School, and it was agreed that the church could use the building but the school was no longer a church school but would be operated by the School Board. In 1904 a new school building was built (James Hughes, Architect, Denbigh) and was officially opened on 4th September 1905. The old school was closed and the building was then used for church and community use until it went in to private ownership in the 1980s.
In 2011 the decision was made to amalgamate the school with Ysgol Clocaenog and since 3rd September 2014 the combined schools became known as Ysgol Carreg Emlyn. It is now a two site school with the Infants at the Ysgol Cyffylliog school building and the Juniors at the Ysgol Clocaenog school site.
