Hello Louis,
It's hard to say. The search engine's follow links on the web and get to webpages this way. So if there are any links to your pages out there, it is possible that the search engines will get to them, and then could also get to your home page via those other pages.

Here is link to another thread where this topic was discussed at length that you may find helpful: Preventing Google Indexing.

Hope this helps,
Emmy
