Birmingham City Council's chief education officer has announced his retirement, just as the council has received a glowing Ofsted report.

Professor Tim Brighouse has been with the council since 1993 and will leave in the autumn, giving time for a successor to be appointed. His next project will be researching urban schools.

Prof Brighouse said: 'This has not been an easy decision, but I am 63 and this job needs more energy than I can give it.'

The Ofsted report praised the professor's leadership as 'energising and inspirational' and said it was an example of 'what can be done even in the most demanding of urban environments'.
