it depends on the curriculum. if british you have only 3 choices, bsak, pearl and the new al yasmina, but i think you will find waiting lists, but you would need to call and ask.

Cambridge High School in Mussafah is based on the English National Curriculum. Al Raha follows the international baccalaureate. There are other schools that provide curricula based on the English National Curriculum but it depends on how important it is to you to get your children into a 'British' school or if you like a more international approach.

They start from KG1 though upto A-levels Of course, for many expats who want to keep their kids in the same system so the transition back to UK is as seamless as poss then I agree that the schools you mentioned are probably better. However, some of the schools that are more international are good if that isn't a major prerequisite.
