DQ vs Compund

Hello all,
We are (as of today) due to move to Riyadh from London either March/April or September 2017.
My husband will be back and forth alone from January.
We have been offered a choice of either the Diplomatic Quarters or a European compound.

I would be grateful for any advice.
The main problem for me is that my husband may have to travel whilst we are there so my daughter(6) and I will be alone and I don't want to feel trapped.

I would also appreciate any advice on schools especially the British school as I am sending applications in this week.

Is there any advice from anyone with children on how the children found the move as well as the mothers?

Thank you.
