I can't seem to find any way to stop people posting on my homepage on Facebook. Is there a way?

By "homepage" I guess you mean timeline.

If that is the case then you need to:

  • Log in to Facebook
  • Select the drop down menu from the arrow and select Privacy Settings (Fig. 1)
  • Click the Custom cog wheel (Fig. 2)
  • In the section called Timeline and Tagging click edit settings
  • In the popup click the drop down next to Who can post on your timeline? and select No one (Fig. 3)
  • Click Done

You can also control posting with the setting under this, "Who can see what others post on your timeline?" -- if they can't see what others post then they are not able to post either. That is useful if you want to restrict posting to a subset of friends, which you can't do with just the first setting. – mark4o Apr 3 '12 at 20:58
