Birmingham is the biggest LEA in the country (I think) so it's hard to give you any specific information if you don't know which area you're thinking of! There's good and bad schools all over the city. Nice areas to live in are places like Bournville, which has good schools. Depending on how close to Birmingham you want to be Solihull or Sutton Coldfield might be good options for you as well.

Kings Heath and Mosley are good but do not try to move after January-September if you have a school in mind because there is a shortage of places city wide. In year transfers are different but it's not an easy process. Call the LEA and get advice.

Just to avoid confusion here, but in England "Public School" means a very selective, elite fee paying school. If you want a school that is free to attend and funded by tax payers, then you want a "state school", of which many are now called "academies", although other fee-paying schools might also be called academies.
