Ysgol Dyffryn I£l is a village school in Llandegla, Denbighshire. The school is under the voluntary control of the Church in Wales and is predominantly an English medium school, with significant use of Welsh.

There are currently 44 pupils on roll, including two who are of Nursery age and another two who are eligible to an early entitlement. Children are admitted to the school on a part-time basis in the term following their third birthday, and full-time in the September following their fourth birthday. The school is organised into two classes; one Foundation Phase class and one key stage 2 class. English is the home language of most pupils, with very few who speak Welsh at home. Most pupils come from a white British background. Around 2% of pupils are entitled to free school meals. This is well below local and national average.
