15-year-old Tommie Rose has been threatened with suspension after making 14,000 pounds ($21,930) selling snacks to friends in the playground.

The has made a fortune by selling chocolate, chips and soft drinks to students at the Buile Hill High School in Salford.

He buys the items in bulk and sells them at competitive prices, even using two partners to help manage his business, paying each of them 5.50 pounds ($8.60) a day.

Rose said that he is saving the money to pay his college tuition fees.

Rose’s school however, notified him about their strict policy against violating healthy eating, and he has been accused of running a black market for sweets.

Rose already accumulated 10 days of suspension at his old school, the Oasis Academy in Salford, as punishment for selling snacks to classmates.

Rose said that he plans to graduate with a business degree from the prestigious Oxford or Cambridge universities.
