    you need to know the exact css selector for the title;
    twenty ten for instance uses #site-title as the css id of the title.

    general example:

    #site-title { text-indent: -9999px;}
    #site-title { visibility: hidden; }
    #site-title { display: none; }

    all with slightly different effects.

    please post a link to your site for more suggestions.

    I would like it to Say 'Harestock Primary School' as the page title.

    I originally had the image and the site title written over it in white with a shadow, however it didn't show the shadow in IE or Chrome making the text lost in the background. So i edited the image so the text was part of it and re-loaded the image. It works fine but can't have a site title now or it writes over the image.

    Any Ideas?

    for instance, try it with:

    #site-title, #site-description {text-indent:-99px;}

    add this somewhere into style.css of your theme, after the other styles for #site-title and #site-description.

    then you add both the site title and tag line back into 'settings' 'general'

    Yeah great work thank you! Had to make it -999px to move it enough but it's worked. Cheers.
