I'm in a new place, on my own but it doesn't have curtain tracks installed so I have been given the go-ahead to fit them myself, but I have no idea what I need to actually do it. Will I need a drill to fix the screws? It'll be going into a 1" wooden baton that's fixed to the lintel.

Yes you will need to pre drill the holes - as the wood batten will split if you just screw in screws ...
I always find YouTube tutorials great for things like this
If you've got a drill it's a good idea to drill pilot holes (small holes to guide the screw and stop the wood splitting), but if you don't and don't want to buy one get yourself a bradawl to make pilot holes.
