Blinds were pulled down on the windows of the school so that pupils could not see what was happening.
A doctor from the air ambulance examined the man in the back of the ambulance and decided he could be taken to hospital by road rather than the helicopter.
He suffered head and thorax injuries, but these are not thought to be life-threatening.
