If you sell sweets at school should you technically have a business license?

I’ve been trying to get to the bottom of this for the past while, I’ve got some friends, 16, who are selling sweets to make a quick buck. Many teachers, and pupils state that the students should have a business licence in order for the selling to be legal, however I don’t think this is true, I think that this is in a grey area. If there is anyone that could give me an answer to this with some evidence, that would be great!

There's no such thing as a "business licence" in the UK. Depending on the type of business, a specific licence might be needed to carry out certain activities (selling booze for instance), but I'm not aware of any special permits required to sell packaged food.
